Would be better suited for a more petite mom
March 7, 2018
The carrier itself is amazing. Super well made and thoughtful design... to an extent. My 8 month old son absolutely loves being worn, and this is our only carrier, so I still use it, but I wish I had purchased the 360 with the velcro waist. I had no problems when my little guy was just starting to fit into the carrier I wore it high on my torso so I could kiss his head, and at 5'11" this landed around about my waist. As he grew taller I had to lower the waistband, but the lumbar support always has to be in the same spot of your back, so while it is setting at my lower back the front padded area is sitting lower and the side straps are digging into the top of my hips. I am a size 16 so I have to use a lot of the waist band strap and the majority of the carried weight is being placed on the strap on each side rather that the lumbar support or front belly piece. I think on a smaller woman it would be a much more comfortable design, but for me I just deal with the pain for my son's sake. Ergobaby really does make great products that wear well and last a long time. Our diaper bag is an ergo and it is just the best. If you are a more average to smaller sized woman I would definitely recommend this product, the adjustability of it is wonderful, the fabric feels great, and baby is super comfy in it from 7lbs on up!
